Canada's Immigration Plan to increase in Canada.

Minister wants more people already in Canada to get residency (2024).

On March 21st, within Canada’s Immigration Minister Marc Miller announced heightened domestic draws for permanent residency, targeting temporary residents. These draws, like Express Entry, prioritize candidates with relevant work experience and language skills to transition them to permanent status, alleviating pressures on housing and healthcare.

What does this mean for people who recently came to Canada?

For people with work or study permits in Canada, Miller’s comments suggest a focus on making them permanent residents. Nonetheless, it’s uncertain how this will turn into policy. Canada has previously favored candidates already in the country. This was evident during COVID-19 when it invited many with lower scores through the Canadian Experience Class. Moreover, Provincial Nominee Programs also often target those already living in the provinces or territories.

The Immigration Minister, Miller, plans to increase domestic draws for permanent residency through both federal and provincial pathways, as mentioned at the beginning of the article.

Why did the immigration minister say these things?

Miller wants to give more chances for people already in Canada to get permanent residency. Furthermore, due to the positive outcomes experienced by individuals in Canada, this contributes to achieving immigration objectives without increasing burdens on housing and healthcare resources.
